Adele shuts down hustler at her concert

During her recent concert in Las Vegas at Caesar's Palace, the multiple Grammy winner engaged in a banter with the crowd when an audience member got in the way. "What was that? Did you just say, 'Pride sucks?' Did you come to my f**king show and just say that Pride sucks? "Are you f***ng stupid? Don't be so f***ing ridiculous. If you got nothing nice to say, shut up, all right?" Adele, 36, said in a video that's gone viral on social media.

How Adele celebrated Pride Month this year

Last year, the singer marked Pride Month during her Las Vegas residency by wearing a black dress with a rainbow flag train and Pride-themed confetti. June has been celebrated as Pride Month annually since 1970. Despite facing challenges, Weekends With Adele has been a resounding success, with multiple extensions announced, continuing through November.
